Simplify

Do these things and watch the economy and population surge.

1) Eliminate the income tax, strike the 16h amendment from the constitution and introduce a 10% federal tax at point of sale. Fixed, never to change for any reason. If economy grows, fed tax intake grows. If it shrinks, so does fed take. Applies to all purchases/sales except for raw foods (not processed beyond cutting/cleaning/packaging and basic inputs to farming and raising food animals).  Why 10% – because it is a reasonable amount based on the GDP for a right sized  government. If funding is too great, add wording to the amendment that allows reductions in percentage (remember, no increases tolerated, not even by euphemism).

2) Eliminate all Federal regulations. Period. The Federal government has 2 duties, defense of the nation and settling disagreements between states. Dismiss 80% of federal employees, not needed, the states take care of their own issues outside of national defense and even then, the Guard remains state controlled and only an act of congress with 2/3 majority vote allows them to go to war outside of the U.S. (something grossly ignored since the close of WW II) The core national defense team is kept small and professional. BTW, border control and embassy functions are a national defense issue all controlled by the Executive branch outside of declarations of war.

3) Privatize or release to the States all social services currently shoved into the federal (centralized) system. All services must be answerable directly to the people at the state level. This includes Welfare , Education, Medical, Retirement and all federal level Police related. With modern communications the FBI is an anachronism and choke point. As to feel good things, States should manage all the so called “National Parks” on their lands seeing what an effed up job the centralized and corrupt apparatchiks do. Resources are to be exploited for the benefit of the citizens of each state, who are directly responsible for their proper management by selecting answerable representatives. Governors appoint the Senators for each state, as it used to be before corruption became dominant.

4) Always keep in mind the glitter rule (it is fool’s gold now, no real gold backs anything):

                      The government cannot give to anybody anything that
                      the government does not first take from somebody else.
                      This includes printing money without limits, inflation
                      takes away your money through devaluation and increased
                      cost of goods which is a tax pure and simple.

5) Federal regulations on everything are one of the root causes of increased cost, poor service, inefficiencies and corruption, leading to a tax burden that directly dis-incentivizes a prosperity which sustains larger families. Return to a low tax environment with 1 breadwinner and 1 home maker then stand back for the explosion of growth and prosperity.

6) Enforce existing laws on immigration. What is coming across the borders is a criminal invasion, not immigration. All those supporting and promoting it should be removed from political office permanently and lose their cushy pensions.

Never happen you say? Well, if we keep on current path the explosion and destruction of what now is, may present such an opportunity in varying degree within each state. Washington is well on the way to becoming irrelevant.

“Governors appoint the Senators for each state, as it used to be before corruption became dominant.” – not to nitpick, but I believe that prior to the 17th amendment, it was the state legislatures that appointed Senators. But yes, the 16th and 17th do really need to be shitcanned.

They had themselves a real bad run a century ago. WW1; the 16th, 17th and 18th Amendments (only 18 has been repealed); League of Nations; German reparations that helped bring on WW2. And yes, repeal of 16th and 17th would be great. But the bozos in charge now will try to introduce that 10% of course with the condition that… Read more »

I would add some teeth to the Constitution. Say mandatory execution for sponsoring a law that is later found to be unconstitutional.

I would more worried about the 25th Amendment if I were you.

Why? Because it was being considered for use while Trump was in office by members of his own cabinet? Were you aware that the Twenty-fifth Amendment has been invoked six times since it was added to the Constitution? Section 1 has been used once; (Nixon) Section 2 has been used twice; (Ford and Rockefeller) Section 3 has been used three… Read more »

I get a kick out of people who think that all we need to do to fix things is to change the Constitution. I don’t care which side of the political divide they are on — they sound completely out-of-touch with reality if they think they can waltz right in and change the Constitution in this day and age. The… Read more »

Did everybody see the clip of Biden saying “My butt’s been wiped?” At least what’s that it sounds like, but judge for yourself.

When do you want me to start posting all of the videos where President Cheeto mangled words and phrases and spoke like his dentures were falling out of his mouth? Up until now, I never saw a good reason to. But now, since apparently the way a guy speaks is suddenly important to you, maybe I can indulge you by… Read more »

First of all, what does Trump have to do with what comes out of Biden’s mouth? Secondly, you seem to think it unimportant that the most powerful man in the world, the one who can decide whether we go to war, is cognitively impaired. Doesn’t seem to know where he is or what he’s talking about a lot of the… Read more »

First of all, what does Trump have to do with what comes out of Biden’s mouth? Well, it’s funny that you latch on to someone with a documented disability as your *proof* that he must be demented or senile because he mangles words and phrases sometimes. Yet when the previous president, who branded himself as a ‘stable genius’ who is… Read more »

Biden admits he has to ‘seek permission to leave’ during press conference

How PATHETIC do you have to be?

Governors appoint the Senators for each state, as it used to be before corruption became dominant. It was the state legislature that picked the US Senators. But why stop there in your roll-back? White male land owners were the only people allowed to vote. Are you going to take us back to that? It’s cute that you think there wasn’t… Read more »

There’s always corruption, DJ. We’re human, and the best of us have feet of clay. The rest are worse (I do not put myself in the ‘best’ category). Expediency and outright greed win more often than not. A lot of that ‘history’ was written to give the more modern folks something to aspire to. Mind you, there’s more rewriting of… Read more »

Mind you, there’s more rewriting of history going on now than usual.  More like correcting the history to make it factual. I was thinking about this last night as I was watching History Channel’s Man vs. History last night. (If you haven’t seen this new show, I would recommend watching it. Pretty interesting.) We tend to glorify certain events in… Read more »

Now tell me Biden isn’t cognitively impaired. Today he said “150 years ago, when I was Chairman of the Judiciary Committee.” That would make him the oldest person in the world.

Biden’s Latest Gaffe Would Make him the Oldest Person EVER

In context, I think he was making fun of the fact that he has been around for a long time. It actually isn’t the first time he’s made similar comments along the lines about being older than dirt. You are a one-trick pony when it comes to this, aren’t you? I mean, with all of the policies flowing out of… Read more »
